Let’s Go! Program Recognizes HealthReach for Helping Patients Make Healthy Choices

WATERVILLE – The Let’s Go! Program, an initiative focused on obesity prevention in both youth and adults, has recognized seven HealthReach centers with the Site of Distinction award. In following the program’s evidence-based strategies, HealthReach is helping patients to establish healthy habits through small, incremental changes in their lifestyle. One of these strategies includes patient discussions about healthy eating and active living when they come in for a visit.

HealthReach practices in Belgrade, Bethel, Coopers Mills/Whitefield (Sheepscot), Kingfield (Mt Abram), Rangeley, Strong, and Western Maine (Livermore Falls) are among 27 practices recognized in 2021! This is a particularly special achievement considering all the changes and challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to HealthReach over the past 20 months.
